SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing the countervailing duty (CVD) order on cast iron soil pipe from the People’s Republic of China (China). DATES: Effective May 3, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background In accordance with sections 705(a), 705(d), and 777(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on February 28, 2019, Commerce published its affirmative final determination in the countervailing duty investigation of cast iron soil pipe from China.1 On April 8, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of imports of subject merchandise from China.2 Scope of the Order The scope of this order covers cast iron soil pipe from China. For a complete description of the scope, see the Appendix to this notice. Countervailing Duty Order On April 8, 2019, in accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination that an industry in the 1 See Cast Iron Soil Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 84 FR 6770 (February 28, 2019) (Final Determination) and the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (IDM). 2 See Letter to Gary Taverman, Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Enforcement and Compliance, from David S. Johanson, Chairman of the U.S. International Trade Commission, dated April 8, 2019 (ITC Letter). PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19039 United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of imports of cast iron soil pipe from China.3 Therefore, in accordance with sections 705(c)(2) and 706 of the Act, Commerce is issuing this countervailing duty order. Because the ITC determined that imports of cast iron soil pipe from China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties. As a result of the ITC’s final determination, in accordance with section 706(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties for all relevant entries of cast iron soil pipe from China. Countervailing duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of cast iron soil pipe from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 2, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination,4 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination as further described below. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 706 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to reinstitute suspension of liquidation on all relevant entries of cast iron soil pipe from China, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determination in the Federal Register, and to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce pursuant to section 706(a)(1) of the Act,5 countervailing duties for each entry of the subject merchandise in an amount based on the net countervailable subsidy rate for the subject merchandise. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Commerce will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit 3 Id. 4 See Cast Iron Soil Pipe from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty, 83 FR 30914 (July 2, 2018) (Preliminary Determination) and the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 5 See Cast Iron Soil Pipe from China, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–597 and 731–TA–1407 (Final), USITC Publication 4879 (April 2019).
